I've never had this before so i have no basis for comparison, but I declare this dish absolutely delicious.

Excellent. I used a bit less oil and a combo of half and half/plain yogurt instead of cream and it turned out fine.

This was great! Took me back to my grandma's kitchen growing up. I messed it up a bit with 2 things. One, I went a bit crazy with the fat-free half and half I decided to use. Turned the dal the most awful shade of puce or something. But, that didn't affect the taste. The other thing I did is I froze it for a ready-made meal. I don't think it froze well. I will surely make this again (this weekend in fact) and will eat it fresh. I may consider upping the spices a little, but it is very good as is.

At first, I thought it wasn't an exciting-enough dish...until I noticed I had snarfed it down and went back for seconds. I used a good-quality lowfat yogurt instead of cream. Eaten with nan, I thought it was quite nice. Thanks, Jan

This turned out really well, but I was so busy following the recipe that I forgot to add extra spices like I usually do (personal taste). Also, I decided to cook the dal in my pressure cooker (which I'm still trying to get the hang of) and underestimated the time a little bit. I will try it again, and I'm sure it will be even better. Thanks for the recipe! I've been wanting to try making Urad Dal.

YUMMY!! I ommitted the cream, for vegans...didn't even need it!! I used an Anahiem Chili? Seemed to work ok. I accidentally put a whole cup of oil in, and wondered why it was oily...whoops! I should think a 1/2 a cup would suffice. I used just under a teaspoon of salt, wouldn't want any more and I LOVE salt. I didn't have garam masala, used chunky chat instead, but only about a teaspoon. This is a delicious hearty dish and I will be making it again in the future with thoughts of adding veggies...Any ideas?

Very easy, very flavorful, very yummy. It turns out my urad dal is the white verion w/the outer skins removed. I cooked them for only 45 minutes but I think that was too long. Regardless, it was delicious. Thanks for posting!
